Cardiff are looking to complete a deal for Bordeaux's Senegal international Younousse Sankhare.

Sankhare, who can play as a midfielder or left-back, is rated at about £4.5m and has been linked with Swansea, Nottingham Forest and Sheffield United.

But Cardiff appear to be leading the race for the 29-year-old, who began his career at Paris St-Germain.

Ex-Swansea boss Paulo Sousa, now at Bordeaux, has left Sankhare out of the squad going to the United States.
